Oh my, if that is where I think it is, then I know who might be poisoning her tree.

KC: You are a roving reporter. Did you see story on trees?
KC November 04, 2011 at 04:36 AM
No, I just happen to be friends with someone that was looking into the legality of killing a tree that wasn't on their property and wanted to know how to kill a tree. I don't think he would do it, but at the same time, I cannot put it past him. Considering this is south OC and 911 is used from everything from hot water to jelly on the street, it might just be seasonal change in leaves.

KC: I didn't know that about 911 .. perhaps a story?
